I’ve been a Beyonce fan ever since I seen her sashaying in the Destiny’s Child No, No, No video. From first sight, I knew she was legend to be a star. Her presence was dominant and demanded your attention. Instantly she became the prominent member amongst the rest and in my eyes it was Beyonce & Destiny’s Child. Now I’ve patiently followed the group with its 3 transformations and remained a dedicated devotee because of Bee. I knew her solo career was imminent because her celebrity was skyrocketing, (B is for BIG). And on her solo debut, Crazy In Love, Beyonce showed us just what bootylicious was. Since then, Beyonce has spun numerous successful albums, received many musical accolades and even became the face of Loreal. Let’s not forget she made JayZ bid adieu to his bachelorhood. So its so hard for me to believe that with all Bee’s triumphs that her acting career is mute.
She became a thespian in 2001 with Carmen: A Hip Hopera which if you weren’t an MTV buff, you’ve missed it. Luke performances ensued and we all watched as Jennifer Hudson snagged that Oscar for Dreamgirls, (well deserved). I still think Beyonce has gradually improved. On Cadillac Records she did her thing and even revived Etta James’s song…hello, she sang for President Obama and the Mrs.! Still in all, I’m a little skeptical with Beyonce’s next venture, Obsessed which is scheduled for release on April 24th. I do hope she can bring it and make this character come to life but my friends think otherwise, (shout-out to VL). Do you think Beyonce will be a successful crossover?
